While we clearly discuss ways to be more productive here at WorkAwesome, we don’t often delve too much into the productivity killers that you bring on yourself. I was thinking about this as I was enjoying the 10th round of solitaire on my iPhone, accidentally-on-purpose avoiding a looming deadline.
It’s not that I didn’t want to do the job; I just didn’t really want to start. The getting paid part of it was really great, and landing the project is always exciting. The project itself…not so much. So I found myself focusing my efforts on winning one more round. And if it’s not solitaire, it’s crib – trying to get that elusive 29. Curse you iPhone apps!
So what do you do to avoid doing what you should be doing, and how do you get yourself back on track?
Or am I the only one that does this?
